Bring your home to life with custom art that features your pet.
For some of us, our pets are not just an animal. They’ve become an integral part of our family, and for good reason! Aside from unconditional love, on an emotional level, owning a pet can decrease depression, stress and anxiety; health-wise, a pet can lower your blood pressure, improve your immunity and even decrease your risk of heart attack and stroke.
All too often, when decorating our homes, artwork gets treated as an afterthought and we most certainly don’t think of the potential for our pets to become a “work of art”. Artwork and custom accessories are usually the last thing to be considered long after the final coat of paint or the artful arrangement of the furniture but relegating both to the sidelines is a missed design opportunity.
When time and thought is put into it, these finishing touches can provide for an entire room and really bring a breath of custom creativity. Check out below for a couple of ways you can create custom artwork of your pet that really let the leash go.
Custom pet pillows
Pawjoy.co offer custom pet pillows, single or double-sided, created in the image of your pet. They offer international shipping to Ireland and your gorgeous new pillow will be in your arms within 10-20 days. In order to get the best result, you will need a high resolution image to upload.
Custom pet mats
UnderfootDesigns.ie, located in North Dublin, offer personalised pet mats. You can choose to add text to your mat for no extra charge. These are really robust and machine washable; ideal for by the fire, under your pet’s food bowls or by the back door for wiping any mucky feet. They also make great hanging wall art for something really different.
UK embroidery artist Emillie Ferris offers the opportunity for you to have your pet immortalised through needle painting. Her hand-embroidered hoops make for a gorgeous wall hanging, perhaps over your pets bed or their favourite place to sprawl out. You could also combine a number of them to create a larger wall display.
Custom blanket or throw
Cuddleclones, based in the US, offer gorgeous printed blankets with your pet on them. These are adorably colourful and sure to brighten up any home. You could choose to have this work of art draped over the back of your couch or perhaps across the bottom of your guest bedroom so anyone staying knows just how much you love your pet!
Custom pet photography
Consider having your pet professionally photographed and turned into a piece of art with Pawtrait Ireland. Choose from an outdoor or studio setting to really showcase your pet’s personality!
Pawtrait Ireland will be exhibiting at house 2019 in the RDS from 24 - 26 May. Get your tickets here to stop by and see them at stand L40 in the Art Loft!
